June 2020 Creative Communities Grant Allocations

8 July 2020

The Westland Creative Communities Committee has awarded $9,790.50 to five diverse creative projects.

The funding allocation meeting in April 2020 was postponed because of the COVID-19 Alert Level 4 Lockdown in March and April 2020. A meeting was held on 16 June to decide allocation of grants for applications received for that funding round.

The recipients in the funding round were:

  • New Coasters Inc for workshops and presentation of ‘Westland Migration Stories’
  • Westland REAP for their Art4me – End of year Exhibition “Homemade”
  • Hokitika Lantern Parade – workshops and parade
  • Westland REAP for ‘Ta Moko Presentation’ at Arahura Marae
  • Tahora Beats for workshops and training

The next funding round allocation meeting for Round 1 2020-2021 will be in September 2020.

Council will advise when applications open. Information for planning an application can be found on our website.
